What We Do
We facilitate and participate in inter-community exchanges with our international partner cities.
We promote harmony and awareness of our common human experience.
We are dedicated group of volunteers, operating a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, that seek to promote peace, hope, and human connections through citizen diplomacy. We identify and select international partner cities that share Fountain Hill’s community values, family heritage, as well as cultural, geographic, and demographic similarities. We work to establish community-to-community partnership agreements that enable and foster one or more inter-community exchanges of the types listed below for the common good of Fountain Hills and its chosen partner cities. These mutually beneficial relationships, maintained through bi-directional exchanges between the partner cities, are intended to last a lifetime and promote cross-boundary improvement of the human condition, and awareness and appreciation of our collective international community beyond what governments can achieve alone.
